Problem was that I had to dilute it with lacquer thinner, too much diluent and the developer burns off all the paint instead of just the UV treated parts, too little and you get a weird spread and the boards paint doesn't get treated properly by UV and burns off in some parts, and not in others. Each failed attempt costs $10 for more developer, so I'm just going to spend $30 on a heat laminator and do the toner method. Not sure how a centrifuge would help me with diluting the paint, or spreading it.

Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

To start, I want to apologize deeply for my absence in this project. I never thought that I would have such a following, but this is what also caused me to disappear; my fear of failing.

For those that haven't read this thread, I was creating (successfully I might add) a controller that was capable of handling any TEC on the market at 12V. My goal was to power them with a computer PSU's 2x 6 pin Graphics Card connectors. I was successful in my prototype, however life threw me a curve ball, and this was why I disappeared... I lost my job when I was making this controller, and this was after I took advanced payment for these controllers. I wasn't going to break even with these controllers, even with taking about 5 pre-orders. I wish life hadn't gotten in the way but it's funny/maddening how these things happen. I want to apologize deeply for how I've vanished over the last 3 or 4 years, and I want to right what I've done.

My goal over the next year is to finalize the controller (if someone hasn't already made one without me), put it into production, pay the money back to those people that backed my project AND provide them a free controller once it's finished.

I know this can't fix what has happened and I feel like a very small man for doing it, but I can only hope that my failure helps me persevere in the quest to finish it and again become the person I was back when it was first started. I am sorry, and I want to make this right.
Whitey!

well life happens, there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.

on the plus side if you actually finish the controllers, the ones who ordered from you that long ago, might be happy with just getting a functional controller. thumb.gif
a controller is the one part of my own project, that I have yet to find a suitable device that works. so, here is o hoping that your controller works well. cheers.gif

Sounds like you're doing the right thing and that's very respectable. Hope all is well now and we see an awesome TEC controller here soon! biggrin.gif
